Real Estate Investment Trusts (“REITs”)
This page provides information on the UK REITs tax regime, which has applied to Hammerson since 1 January 2007.
Included are declarations to be completed by certain categories of shareholders to register for Property Income Dividends to be paid gross. The shareholders who qualify for gross payment are principally UK resident companies, UK public bodies, UK charities, UK pension funds, and the managers of ISAs, PEPs and Child Trust Funds. Most shareholders, including all individuals and all non-UK residents, do not qualify for gross payment and should not complete the forms.
